UK member here and relatively new to the forum and thought it might be an idea to start a thread that could be beneficial and helpful to everyone, both short and long term.
First off, forgive me if there is already a thread very similar to this posted somewhere on the forum. I thought it would be interesting to find out what supplementation works for you as an individual.
The kind of supplementation I am talking about here can be anything that has had a really positive and life changing effect on your general health and well-being. Feel free to talk about health foods, herbs, vitamins and minerals and all things widely available to us. (Coconut Oil, Zinc, Magnesium, Iodine, Rhodiola, Selenium etc … to name just a few)
I would love to hear how a supplement has enhanced mood, improved hormonal health and given you a more positive outlook on life. (Depression, anxiety, all things testosterone and thyroid, overall health)
A link to my own personal story can be found here:
My current health has deteriorated and I am looking at various ways of improving my quality of life. Over the years I have suffered with low mood, depression, low self-esteem and self-confidence and it has impacted upon my daily life in so many ways. My issues are still on-going and I continue my search to find ways to become a better, healthier, happier me!
After reading TC’s article on how much multi-vitamins suck I started to experiment with most of what he recommended in his article. Charles Polquin recommended creatine pre-peri for hypertrophy so I do that. The guys at Rennaisance Nutrition convinced me straight sugar and BCAAs work perfectly for peri workout supplementation. Paul Carter also had an interesting article on post workout protein and I’ve used that for my recovery drink.
Add it all up and here’s what you get:
30mg K1/K2 supplement
Vitamin B complex supplement
Vitamin D3 supplement
1.5g Curcumin (Divine Bounty, pretty reasonably priced on Amazon)
1 low dose aspirin
